Let the cost of an equipment is Rs. 100.

Now the percentages of depreciation at the end of 1st,2nd,3rd years are 15, 13.5,12, which are in A.P., with a=15 and d= -1.5.



Hence, percentage of depreciation in the tenth year = a + (10-1) d = 15 + 9 (-1.5) = 1.5

Also total value depreciated in 10 years = 15 + 13.5 + 12 + ... + 1.5 = 82.5



Hence, the value of equipment at the end of 10 years=100 - 82.5 = 17.5.


The total cost being Rs. 6,00,000/100 * 17.5 = Rs. 1,05,000.


I think my answer is correct
